ABERDEEN, UK -- GRL has supplied a ROVolution simulator to CTC Marine Projects for used in general ROV pilot training and to practice trenching plough deployment.
CTC uses ROVolution as a general ROV pilot training tool. In one scenario, GRL has customized ROVolution to use CTC's WR1 work class ROV to observe the deployment of the AMP500 trenching plough, used for cutting trenches and laying pipes. In this case, once the plough is deployed to the seabed, the ROV pilot has to set up key components before performing an inspection to ensure it is ready and safe to start. The instructor can also choose to simulate plausible real world problems.
